Good Morning Beautiful!

Ah, theres nothing better than a good cup of coffee to start the day is there? Well how about you grab a cup and we have some Monday morning ramblings?

How was your weekend? I hope your well rested and ready for the week. My weekend was one of those weekends that was the perfect mix of being out and about and relaxation. The kind that actually leaves you ready to take on the work week. 

Spring finally peeked it's head out on Saturday and it was GLORIOUS! I could tell I wasn't the only one enjoying it either because when I stepped outside I heard kids laughing, basketballs bouncing, and families talking as they brought out the grills from winter hibernation. Yes it was amazing! I got out some on Saturday and joined my friend for some retail therapy at Kohl's. {:That place has the best deals! I got a sweater and flip-flops for 19 dollars. Oh hey bargain!:} We then finished our girls outing with a trip to the grocery store. Yup, thats how you know you are getting old maturing, when girl's days involve the grocery store. I mainly went to help her out because her sweet baby girl wasn't the happiest and I thought I would come to be reinforcements if needed. Yes, I feel that there will be a post coming soon on how you know you're "maturing."

Can I share something exciting with you? Okay good you're still reading so that must mean yes. I have actually been getting up early in the morning to have my quiet time with God! Okay you are probably wondering what the big deal is. Okay here's the big deal-HUGE; I have been trying to do this for YEARS! Literally, it has been one of my goals to do my quiet time before work for at least three years and it's never stuck. I have always been more of a read before you go to bed kinda gal. And that's great if that's your thing I just always read before I start my day on Saturday and then I find myself meditating on it throughout the day. I always gave the excuse that I wasn't a morning person. {:I mean I hit the snooze button a minimum of 3x a day.:} But, I decided the devil wanted me to keep thinking that so I wouldn't do it because he knew how good it would be for me. So I decided to fight that guy back! And you know what, I slept the worst ever when I decided to do it, but I decided he wasn't winning. I was. And now I have been doing it for 2 weeks straight. They say after 30 days it becomes a habit so I am half way there. Just had to share that exciting news. 

There's nothing really new on the Australian front other than wowie wow wow wow is it getting close. In less than four months I'll be Australia bound. But, in a month from tomorrow I will be in Savannah with these two beauties. Oh I cannot wait for beach time and warm weather.

Hey thanks for the coffee date. I needed some girl time. xoxo

  3. My mom has always been able to wake up at like 3 or 4am, close herself off in her office and we'll always find her hours later with her Bible listening to her worship music. I love that about her! Although I definitely know it's not something I'm built for. So happy you're doing it for yourself now too!


Thanks for your comment. I absolutely LOVE reading them and they bring honest joy to my day, so thanks!
